I’m visiting another crafty spot today! Megin from VMG206 is sharing my post on rediscovering brass (and those sweet little cats) in her internet space. Please pop over and check it out!
And if you’ve traveled here from Megin’s blog – welcome! I hope you’ll take a look around and let me know if there’s something you enjoy. I’d love to get to know you!
At the beginning of this week, the girls and I have planned to tackle the re-planting of all of our seeds (sigh… as the previous ones are confirmed to be rotten…) and will find a warm spot for our pots to live inside. Our precious little pumpkin sprouts are sitting on a sill, waiting patiently to be transplanted into bigger pots.
In the sunshine of Saturday, we discovered that despite our blackened thumbs, there was something wonderful happening in the garden. Our rhubarb (last year’s model) is quite happy to be living in his little garden bed and is reaching towards the sunshine!
Grow, little fella! Grow those beautiful red limbs so that I can crunch on ’em with sugar. Or how about stewed rhubarb over ice cream? That’s a blog post I’d be happy to do.
But then we discovered that Bambi and his Thug-Life posse had trespassed and vandalized our yard. The deer snacked on all of our tulips unde the cover of darkness. I know that it’s hard to rationalize with giant fence-hopping quadrapeds, but COME. ON. I’m trying to grow stuff here. Cut me some slack!
Again, I’m going to pull up my socks and keep trudging on. And I’m going to get some netting to cover my veggie beds. I don’t want to end up being that crazy person hollering at unblinking deer faces while they continue to mow down my plants.
If you have any solutions/tips to keeping these lawnmowers-with-hooves out of your gardens, please share them. I’m all ears!
